Born in Bozeman, MT, Andrea Malmberg has lived most of her life on the land with livestock.
She has a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and a Master of Science in Natural Resource Sciences from Washington State University.
Pushing 30 years and in many different capacities, Andrea has facilitated the understanding of ecological, financial, and sociological, factors enabling sound holistic decisions. Alongside her husband Tony, she has run several regenerative land-based enterprises always with the purpose of honing her skills to enhance the well-being of people, animals, and our planet, now and into the future. She delights in ranching, homesteading, conviviality, vibrant philosophical discussions and studying human behavior. She finds purpose in being civically active, participating in the creation of healthy communities, restoring land, making connections and creating spaces.
After completing studies in Zimbabwe and Argentina in 2004, she became an accredited professional in Holistic Management. Seeing the need to bring the tools of human flourishing to rural communities, she received a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. She has now created a platform, lifeenergy.guide, that people throughout the world are using to manage and monitor their well-being.
